• Why make your own babies if there are millions of kids who need a home?

    I have friends who grew up in foster care. No parents, no family, just bouncing around fron home to home. Then they turn 18 and are left to fend for themselves. It breaks my heart hearing their story. As adults they are the most selfless and compassionate people I know. Why not give these kids a real life and love... show more

  • Is it bad that I’m under age and I already want to adopt?

    I’m thinking about adopting 2 kids when I’m old enough and have a stable enough income to do so. I don’t want to do it cause I can’t have kids, I feel like I’m the only one that can help, or I’ll get some money out of it. I just personally don’t want to give birth, but I do want kids.

  • What is the best route to adopt?

    My husband and I are both 33 and looking to adopt. We have 4 biological children, 9 y/o twin boys and 7 and 4 y/o girls. I am a Pediatrician and my husband is an Anesthesiologist in Oregon, so we are financially capable of caring for another child.

    My husband and I are both 33 and looking to adopt. We have 4 biological children, 9 y/o twin boys and 7 and 4 y/o girls. I am a Pediatrician and my husband is an Anesthesiologist in Oregon, so we are financially capable of caring for another child. We are having an issue with deciding which route we’d like to go. International, foster care, and private infant adoption all seem to have pros and cons to them, so I’d like to hear personal experience and advice from those who’ve adopted. Age, gender, and race do not make a difference, but we are a white family and I’ve heard a plethora of complaints about adoptees raised in families who do not match them physically. I wouldn’t want to cause even more emotional damage by making them stick out like a sore thumb in a judgemental world. I’ve also heard you shouldn’t disrupt birth order, so a 3 year old would be the oldest we could adopt if we based our criteria on that. We love babies, but waiting for years for an expectant woman to choose us doesn’t sound terribly appealing. I’ve heard various things about international adoption. Some say it’s simple while others say it’s difficult. I’m not too thrilled about the prospect of having to fly to another country to pick a child up either, due to our demanding schedules. I’ve also heard the many things wrong with foster care and the daunting issues the children can have, along with the troubles with bio family which makes me slightly hesitant. If you have any advice I’d appreciate it.

  • I am black but I was raised by white foster parents?

    Best answer: Are you an American? Were you put with an American family? If so than you were put with your kind. Likewise if you were kept with the national association of your citizenship. People should stop putting so much emphasis about something as empty as race.

    Best answer: Yes, they can. In all 50 states.

    As far as adopting together, most states require couples be legally married before they can adopt together and be married 1-3 years. If their state requires couples need to be married to adopt together, they're not an exception to it. This is required of straight couples as well.

    That's the legal end of things, an adoption agency can take any client they choose or not choose. If they're looking at homophobe agencies, they need to find another one.

    In most modern adoptions for a newborn/infant, the birthparent(s) choose the adoptive parents through profiles they are presented that match the type of adoptive parents they're hoping to place their baby with.
